Management information systems (MIS) produce the information that managers use to make important strategic decisions. This book covers the essential managerial skills that are necessary to design these systems. In contrast to other books on management information systems, this book takes a decidedly managerial perspective. It focuses on how managers perceive and respond to information, and on their need to use this information to make important decisions. The book considers how systems can be designed to combat 'information overload' experienced by managers, using such techniques as data aggregation and data visualization. Chapters provide an in-depth and practical consideration of these topics, focusing on the use of information systesms for managerial decision making. Designing Management Information Systems covers the topics of key performance indicator monitoring, and of shortlisting and selecting alternatives from a range of options. These are managerial decisions for which MIS are particularly useful, and which managers face on a daily basis. This is the first book offering practical guidance on how systems should be designed to support these decisions. It is written for managers, those studying business, management, and IT, and those developing MIS on behalf of management.

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Informatik - Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: 1,3, Berufsakademie Berlin, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Unternehmen aller Branchen stehen einem hohen Veränderungsdruck gegenüber. Einher mit einer fortschreitenden Globalisierung, veränderten regulatorischen Rahmenbedingungen und immer schneller werdenden Innovationszyklen, entstehen neue Anforderungen, denen ein Unternehmen mit hoher Wandlungsbereitschaft gegenüber treten muss. Dabei kommt der Informationstechnologie (IT) eine immer stärkere Bedeutung zu. Dies verdeutlicht ein zurzeit vollzogener Paradigmenwechsel in diesem Bereich. Während nach dem Ende der ersten e-business Euphorie zum Ausklang des vergangenen Jahrtausends vermehrt die Wirtschaftlichkeit von IT-Anwendungen in Frage gestellt wurde, zeigt sich heute, dass durch die Koordination des konzernweiten IT-Einsatzes multinationale Prozesse besser gesteuert und hierbei ein entscheidender Beitrag zum Unternehmenserfolg geleistet werden kann. Der Vorstandsvorsitzende der Hewlett Packard GmbH Deutschland, Menno Harms, sprach anlässlich der CeBIT 2003 hierbei von einer neuen, wertschöpfenden Betrachtung von IT-Anwendungen unter dem Begriff Return on Information Technology. Als zentrales Instrument zur Umsetzung des Unternehmenswandels wurde und wird das Projektmanagement angesehen. Diese zeitlich befristete Organisationsform ermöglicht es, Unternehmen an die sich immer schneller ändernden Marktbedingungen anzupassen. Eine Vielzahl von Projekten in allen Unternehmensbereichen war die Folge. Es zeigte sich jedoch, dass viele erfolgreiche Einzelprojekte noch keine Garantie für einen Gesamterfolg darstellen. Dafür gibt es zwei Gründe: Erstens müssen die Ziele der einzelnen Vorhaben nicht nur in sich schlüssig sein, sie müssen überdies auch in der Gesamtheit – dem Projektportfolio – optimiert werden. Zweitens muss dieses Projektportfolio an die Unternehmensstrategie angebunden sein und international koordiniert werden. Diese Optimierung aller Projekte verfolgt das Projektportfoliomanagement – auch Multiprojektmanagement genannt.

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: In einer Zeit, die ökonomisch auch durch die Internationalisierung der Märkte, geringe Reaktionszeiten bei Marktveränderungen und härter werdenden Wettbewerb gekennzeichnet ist, wird das Management im Unternehmen mit immer komplexeren Entscheidungssituationen konfrontiert. Dies zwingt Unternehmen dazu, Methoden und Strategien zu entwickeln, um diesen veränderten Anforderungen gerecht zu werden. Bei dem in dieser Arbeit untersuchten Unternehmen spielen diese veränderten Rahmenbedingungen eine besonders bedeutende Rolle. Es muß als Bodenabfertigungsdienstleister an den Berliner Flughäfen nach einer Richtlinie zur Liberalisierung der Bodenabfertigungsdienste in der Europäischen Union, im Zeitraum 1998 - 2003 wesentliche Bereiche freigeben. Der damit verbundene Wegfall der Monopolstellung in Verbindung mit hieraus resultierenden erheblichen Neuerungen am Markt bedeutet neue Herausforderungen für das Management. Diesem sollten daher Hilfsmittel zur Verfügung gestellt werden, welche entscheidungsunterstützende Wirkung haben. Mit dem Aufbau zentraler Datenbanken Ende der 60er Jahre entstand erstmals die Idee der Informationssysteme für das Management, die jedoch in der Praxis am noch zu niedrigen Stand der Technik und den zu hohen Erwartungen scheiterte. Dieser Zustand hat sich mit einer neuen Generation von Management-Informationssystemen grundlegend geändert. Durch die immer schneller fortschreitende Technisierung können mit den Informationssystemen Konzepte realisiert werden, die sich an betriebswirtschaftlichen Problemen und am Informationsbedarf der Nutzer orientieren. Die Management-Informationssysteme unterstützen das Management in vielfältiger Weise bei der Entscheidungsfindung und besonders bei der Bewältigung dieser geänderten Rahmenbedingungen bzw. neuen Herausforderungen. Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es, nach der Ist-Analyse und anschließender Analyse des Informationsbedarfs Ansätze zur Verbesserung des Management-Informationssystems der untersuchten Unternehmung zu entwickeln. Hierzu sind die geänderten Rahmenbedingungen und Möglichkeiten der Informationstechnologien zu beachten, wobei der Schwerpunkt auf inhaltlich/organisatorische Aspekte gesetzt wird. Innerhalb dieser Betrachtungsweise werden Soll/Ist-Unterschiede des Informationsbedarfs (Informationslücken) festgestellt. Funktionell/formelle Gesichtspunkte werden nur ansatzweise betrachtet und allgemeine Verbesserungsvorschläge gemacht. Gang der [...]
